    Well, the car has been sitting since Tuesday due to a coolant leak and the fact that I was driving the car with no air filter on the turbo. I drove the car to my job after the turbo install to wash it and my coworker told me I left behind a little coolant. Drove the car to work tuesday and got under it and the car is pouring coolant from one of the radiator hoses I installed. Went from a few drips to a pretty serious leak (in a day) as the whole parking spot is pretty wet. One thing after another. Hopefully I get the time to hop under the car tomorrow to fix the coolant leak and get coolant to the turbo, and to install my K&N filter. Don't buy cheap or you'll buy twice. One thing after another. Hoping to ge tthe gauges installed over winter break.

    Coolant leak fixed. Loose hose clamp. Wednesday will be getting coolant to the turbo (rerouting the TB lines) and installing the air filter and depending on how much time I have left, might record some GoPro videos. Also managed to burn my hand on the exhaust manifold trying to feel the leak with the engine running. Turns out exhaust manifolds are hot, who knew?
